When I quit my job over a year ago, the only thing I missed was my friend with whom I'd go walking at lunchtime with. Since she lives in town, and I live in the 'burbs, that was our time to see each other, during the weekday lunch hours. I got to see her once when I was off, and we have a lovely time. Last year, she finally got her Canadian citizenship and she requested a dozen maple leaf soaps.
For some reason, after she put in her order, we never ended up meeting up. She thought I was mad at her, I thought she was mad at me, and neither of us wanted to broach the subject for the longest time. I finally decided to email her and see what was up. Turned out we weren't mad at each other, just some emails went missing.
So after probably one and a half years, we're finally going to meet up again. She still wants the maple leaf soaps she said, but they'll be given away as Canada Day gifts rather than as a celebration of her making it through her citizenship exam.
The picture has nothing to do with anything, it just appealed to my warped sense of humour.
